If you are using a computer or laptop/notebook, then you should be fine.

Okay, everybody should now be able to see the full description on their screen.

Tasks at construction sites can vary, such as painting, landscaping, hammering nails, working with wood and tools, etc.

Construction experience/knowledge is not required. Anyone who is competent, able-bodied, and willing to follow instructions, is welcome to help.


This is physical labor and involves working with your hands.


Wearing old/casual clothes and sturdy shoes is recommended.

Tools, helmets, and gloves are usually provided by HfH.

The construction day is usually 7:30am - 3:30pm.
Minimum age to volunteers is 16.

FAQ


Q: What is the address?

A: More than one home may be under construction, so there may be multiple locations. Register with HfH and they will provide more details, such as the location/address and parking info.

____________________________________________

Construction may not occur every Saturday, or it may be full with other volunteers. Saturdays can fill up, so check their calendar for openings.

The following is from Habitat for Humanity:

The workday will begin at 7:30 a.m. and will end at 3:30 p.m. We ask that you stay for the full work day.

When you arrive onsite you will be asked to present your Site Specific Liability Form. You will then sign in and receive a name badge.

A safety meeting will begin at 7:45 a.m. (IF YOU MISS THE SAFETY MEETING YOU WILL NOT BE ALLOWED TO WORK THAT DAY).


We will break for lunch around 11:15 a.m. and will resume work at approximately 12 p.m.

Feel free to bring your own lunch as lunch will not be provided by HfHOC. All safety materials and tools are provided by HfHOC and we ask that you do NOT bring your own. We suggest leaving all personal items such as cameras and purses in your car as HfHOC is not responsible for lost or stolen items. Please note OSHA Safety Regulations state that ALL VOLUNTEERS must wear hard soled work boots or hiking boots. No tennis shoes or sneakers are permitted on the build sites. Click here for a sample of allowable footwear. NO OPEN-TOED SHOES ALLOWED.

For liability reasons no one under the age of 16 is allowed on our construction sites. Volunteers ages 16 and 17 are welcome to build with us and are asked to bring a Site Specific Liability Form signed by a parent or legal guardian on their first build day. It is required that volunteers ages 16 and 17 be accompanied by an adult volunteer 25 years of age or older.

How to find us:See description for sign up instructions. If other members sign up, maybe post a comment, or contact each other in advance, and coordinate together on how best to meet one another. Thanks for helping. Have fun!
